Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention
Vicki Wysocki, PhD, is a member of the Molecular Carcinogenesis and Chemoprevention Program at the OSUCCC – James, where she focuses on the development of mass spectrometry (MS)-based metabolomics and proteomics tools in support of cancer research.
Dr. Wysocki’s research is separated into three broad areas: the determination of peptide dissociation mechanisms as a means for improving programs used for automated sequencing of peptides and proteins; biomarker discovery for foreign organism detection and disease diagnosis using proteomics methods; and the implementation of surface-induced dissociation into commercial time-of-flight instruments.
One of her projects uses a model pathogen, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, and a mouse model of disease coupled with several technologies (including MS) to characterize the microbial community and nutrient landscape during infection.
Dr. Wysocki has co-authored numerous articles in well-known publications, including Analytical Chemistry, Nature, Cell Reports and the Journal of Thoracic Oncology.
